Congratulations to Patrick Moore and Kyla Kruse!

Patrick Moore and Kyla KrusePatrick Moore, director, concurrent enrollment, and Kyla Kruse, assistant director, public relations, graduated from Leadership Springfield at a ceremony held Feb. 7. Leadership Springfield is a 14-week series of half-day programs, sponsored by the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce, during which participants gain leadership skills and in-depth exposure to critical issues affecting the Springfield area. Outside of the regular program sessions, participants were challenged to exercise creativity and problem-solving skills as they worked in teams on projects for the benefit of area not-for-profit organizations. Patrick’s team created a marketing video for Senior Services of Central Illinois to increase awareness of its mission and services, and Kyla’s team conducted research, a survey and outreach to local businesses to develop recommendations for increasing volunteerism at Habitat for Humanity of Sangamon County.
